Galaxys Edge and DAS - our experience

We flew home on Friday 30th so we weren't going to attempt Smugglers Run with our autistic son - I did email Disney to ask if DAS would be available to use and they replied that it would. We were sat eating a late lunch at 2.30pm on opening day and saw the wait time was 105 minutes and the land was open so we hot footed it over to Hollywood Studios. We wanted to see the land really. The cast members were helpful and we got a return time for Smugglers Run. Off we went for a drink and to people watch and returned to ride.

The land was extremely hot that day - my son struggled with that more than the crowds but we were pleased to have gone and he coped reasonably well - he was pleased to go back to the hotel despite him being a huge Star Wars fan.

I hope that helps as I remember seeing lots of people asking about DAS while we were there but I couldn't log on on my phone as I'm not sure what my password is!

Can I ask, did you go in a particular way to the ride once you got the DAS return time? I'm trying to work out light levels of the queuing area and how long it is if that makes sense? I struggle in low light levels so worried as travelling solo and don't want to get stuck in a really winding dark queue on my own as will have a panic attack and end up in tears. I usually get DAS due to my issues but just don't want to push myself if its going to be too harsh

I think it was dimly lit - it was definitely a long winding corridor as there were only DAS in it so no wait really at the end but it was very long. I'll check with the rest of my family once they are awake.

For all rides including this one you dont actually have to go to the ride if you see any of the blue Disney experience team you can book it with them including smugglers run. We did this on our entry on Friday as I had a few fast passes booked elsewhere.

They seem to be using what will eventually be a fast pass queue line for DAS returns.

Did you get to see all of the "inside" of the Falcon or did you bypass it in the fastpass queue?
